Today, our new music spotlight is on Hobby Club.
Line-up: Beth Truscott (vocals), Joe Rose (guitar/laptop/drums/bass)
About: Beth Truscott and Joe Rose’s sound is as unique as their vision of the world – sharing an unusual eye condition they only discovered after meeting each other. The sound of Hobby Club is lyrical domesticity that evokes harbours and mills towns, disappointing house parties, bus tickets and slate-grey skies.
Having released two singles, ‘For Maurice’, their ode to local weirdo Maurice G. Flitcroft and dreamers everywhere and ‘Bedroom’, the jolly lament of heartbreak, jangle-pop duo Hobby Club release their debut EP ‘Video Days’ on Manchester tastemaker label Heist or Hit (Her’s, Pizzagirl).
What Hidden Herd say: DIY duo Beth Truscott and Joe Rose AKA Hobby Club are purveyors of bittersweet jangle pop bliss and latest release ‘Bedroom’ is another slice of woozy melancholy, brimming with reverb-drenched guitar lines and evocative atmosphere.
For fans of: The Smiths, Orange Juice, Pizzagirl
